HP stands in the God position with his back to the altar. HPS kneels before him, and with
reverence anoints his member with oil, while saying:
I call upon thee, o mighty member,
Thou Majestic Blue Penis.
Come now, arise into this your Priest (name)
Let your power flow into him
As the sap rises within a tree.
I invoke thee, o mighty one,
Father eternal, deliverer of the seed.
HPS touches HP on right nipple, left nipple, penis, right nipple, saying:
Hail Majestic one,
Proud and upright.
Deliverer of the seed of life,
And with the Mother Eternal,
Bringing forth fertility to the land.
I kneel before thee, thy tumescence at my lip.
HPS kisses member.
I adore thee, and revere thee,
O mighty one, bringer forth of life.
Charge of the Penis:
Listen to the words of the Majestic Blue Penis, He of old, who is called among men,
staff, rod, tool, schlong, pole, dick, cock, pud, and many other names. Hear now the
words of his charge.
Whenever ye have need of me, once a month or whenever I arise, assemble together
alone, and adore the spirit of me, who is the deliverer of the seed of life. Ye shall be free,
and as a sign of that freedom, ye shall be naked in your rites. Ye shall make love or take
joy in thy self-pleasure, alone or among any or all who revere me. For I am pleasure, and
the bringer of pleasure. All acts of love and pleasure are mine, with no remorse or
shame, for I am the ecstasy of the body and spirit and joy on the earth.
Power Raising Chant: Rub-a-dub-dub
Arise mighty pud(chant 3 times)
Rub it to a nub
Hard and stiff
Wish it was
Down to my knee
Short or tall
Thin or fat
Stroke it up
I like it like that
Caress it up
Kiss it down
Have a lot of fun
With never a frown
Stick it in
Stroke it out
Lots of oil
Make it spout
(Chorus until HP yells SPOUT, I mean Down)
All participants alone or with partner(s) pay homage to the Majestic One in whatever way
inclination strikes them. (The altar effigy may be used if so desired by any of the
Wine and Cakes:
As the rod is to the male
So the cup is to the female
Insert athame or wand (don't dip your wick, sanitary reasons, of course)
Cojoined, they are one.
Blessing of your choice.
Release/Thank the Quarters
Draw up the Circle (and then clean up the mess!)
Well, there ya have it, the fictitious (?) Majestic Blue Penis ritual. Enjoy, and watch out
for hairy palms or going blind (or at least have available, if needed, a bottle of Nair and a white
cane.) May the Lord and Lady always light your chosen path. Blessed Be.

Today (November 18, 1994) is the first day in my life that I actually felt and saw the
spirit in trees and bushes. I was observing a particular tree and noticed its beauty. Somehow I
decided to send love to that tree. What I received was love, but not my own. It had a
and texture than my own, and it was strong. I started sending to each tree as I walked by,
and as I
got nearer to the tree I could feel its love even stronger. I had to open up to it once and awhile but
sometimes I could feel the return as I was giving. With some trees I felt a connection more than
with others, that I cannot explain. But once I became aware of the feel of this love from them, I
began to sense their spirits and then began to hear their spirit voices, talking and answering my
questions. It was such a moving experience, I had to write it down right away. There are only 4
or 5 people I could tell this to, maybe less. It didn't freak me out or scare me; I didn't feel
crowded or watched like I usually do when I start sensing spirits. But this time there was an
age-old connection between two living things--plant and animal, spirit and spirit. We are made of
same energy and I could feel that familiarity with them as if they had known me for years.
Hopefully I will never forget this experience because it has opened my senses to feel plants. I've
been wanting to do this for years. I was finally ready for it to happen.
This journal entry was written in November of 1994 for a class that I was taking at Auburn
University. We were told to write about anything we desired or felt the need to write about. It
takes place in front of the old Bio lab and nursing building.If you have never experienced nature so intimately, know that you can. My experiences
have been few, but they become more interesting each time. Here are some steps to experiencing.
Maybe these will work for you and maybe they won't. Good luck!
1. Surround yourself with nature--go to a forest, stream, desert, mountain, or any
2. Focus your attention on a rock, tree or plant.
3. Be still and listen, opening yourself to any thoughts, feelings, or impressions
that come to you.
Don't second guess, just accept these at face value.
4. Ask a question, either out loud or in your head. Or visualize or imagine loving
emanating from your body, either as white or pink light.
5. Again wait and listen. Be open to anything outside of yourself. If you're lucky,
6. Write me or email me with your experiences (email@example.com, Jennifer
Ashmore Drive, Newnan, GA 30263). Maybe we could start a group of Treetalkers!
Love and light!
Introduction to the Series
As a waiter in the mundane world, I appreciate the common-sense points of etiquette that
the guest-server relationship. Above all, I am there to provide comfort. Without intimidation, I
can advise anyone on a gourmet menu and wine selection. Proper table setting, also, is nothing
more than a practical, safe, and convenient arrangement, to which my blind clientele will
attest.Guests, on the other hand, must communicate to me their needs, in words or subtle
gestures. The knife and fork, for example, tell me to remove the dinner plate when they are
aligned a certain way upon it. Across the table, a coffee cup turned upward prompts me to return
with the dessert display (and or course, hot beverages).
Throughout the meal, neither conversation nor chewing need be interrupted by my
attentive service. Guests leave well-contented with their relaxing dinner, and my wallet is fuller,
simply because we understood a few principles of courtesy toward each other.
Queen Victoria once entertained a Middle-Eastern dignitary, who drank from his
finger-bowl. In turn, Her Majesty took a sip from her own. In a similar incident, Edward III
Order of the Garter when the Countess of Salisbury lost her stocking band on the ballroom floor.
Relieving her fear (some say she was a witch) and embarrassment, the King donned the garter
himself, saying, "Evil to he who evil thinks."
Etiquette, one realizes, has little to do with salad-fork trivia and the patience-trying
stiffness of high-brow affairs. To be noble is to act nobly towards others, with sensitivity and
respect. Societies develop rules to protect their members from awkwardness, injury, and other
obstacles to their greater survival and pleasure. Truck drivers flash brights to warn or reassure
other motorists; wedding planners ensure less confusion; and countries avoid war over misguided
Our Neo-Pagan culture--where we celebrate diversity, revel in holy hedonism, and resent
tyranny of values--has no place for charm school; nor do we need the inflexible protocol which
alienates others by facades and closed-mindedness. The Goddess calls us from so many different
backgrounds, into journeys on so many different spiritual avenues, such that conformity is never
Yet, we perform customary Rites of Passage, we treat our Elders with special dignity, we
encourage psychic hygiene for the well-being of all, and Wiccans, especially, follow the Main
Tenet. "Etiquette," in effect, means "An ye harm none..."
Covens and larger groups generally sketch explicit lines between tolerance and taboo.
Newcomers and solitaries, however, must rely on common sense, momentary counsel, and
trial-and-error, in order to gain the full advantages of webweaving among the Craft. Sincere,
manners will put you, undeniably, at the feet of the wisest teachers and yield you acceptance
faster than any degree or lineage. More importantly, the super-ordinary dimensions of witches'
lifestyles warrant our extra precautions, to "harm none," nor allow the niaveté of others
harm upon ourselves.
In the aim of preventing such offense, and thereby lending a boost of social confidence in
our community, do I introduce this series on the etiquette of Wicca.
From my own experiences--including mistakes--as well as those of contributors, will I
draw these suggestions for comfort among magical people--considering their feelings, respecting
their power, and embracing Divinity within everyone. To one with fine breeding and sharper
wits, this column may seem redundant. Still, let me emphasize certain courtesies in view of
spirituality, and relax certain standards of prudery, which stifle the health of our innovative
bonds. Let me not, however, present more than suggestions to ponder; nor let me offer myself as
a yardstick of propriety. I can only guide readers to think for themselves in sensitivity, not dictate
every step of another's behavior in every situation.
In closing, I speak on behalf of some, though not all, learned Wiccans who feel that
fleshing out the Main Tenet in a social context would benefit our spiritual work as well.
Peace, Health, Bright Blessings!

The articles in this series are intended to expose you to a variety of new age techniques
and topics. Meditative exercises help you learn to slow your brain frequency to a level where
your right brain (or practical side) relinquishes control, and your left brain (the more intuitive
side) takes over. Using this lower brain frequency, or alpha frequency, you can learn to feel the
energy fields that exist around all matter.
If you've never worked with crystals, you'll be surprised to find how easy it is to feel the
different energy levels given off by different types of stones. Even without consciously lowering
your brain frequency, you will probably be able to feel the difference between hematite and rose
quartz, malachite and amber. Some stones feel warmer then others. Some stones feel denser. If
you've never experienced this, go to a rock shop, natural products store or new age/crystal shop
and run your fingers through the bins of stones. After experimenting a bit, you can actually close
your eyes and tell by the feel of the stone what it is.
While meditating, you can experience the different vibrations of the stones even
Why would you want to? According to some sources, crystals can be used for everything
from enhancing your love life to strengthening your immune system. Some stones are said to
increase mental clarity, others to cure AIDS. Some believe that the mystic properties of a crystal
are caused by its color. There isn't room here to go into every belief about the properties and
qualities of crystals. Just be sure to keep your common sense fully engaged when reading in this
area. Check out Barbara Walker's The Book of Sacred Stones, published by
in 1989, for an unbiased and intelligent assessment.
So is it all bunk? Not exactly, but the claims made are exaggerated. It is true that different
stones have different energy vibrations, and it is certainly conceivable that these vibrations can
have an impact on your body. Just as some music causes changes in your brain (listening to
Mozart has been found to improve abstract thinking, for example), it seems logical that
something that gives off a specific energy wave can affect your cells. Just what that effect is,
though, is debatable. Use crystals as you would any tool to focus your intelligence on what you
want to do.
One thing you can do with crystals is use them to enhance your meditation. Just as with
psychometry, where the article held is perceived by your mind as giving you information you are
obtaining from other sources, using crystals can help you to focus on a problem or thought. You
can use any semi-precious stone for the exercises that follow, although clear quartz is generally
used, and this is one area where no one argues that size matters. Choose the largest stone you can
Find a comfortable position and close your eyes, holding your crystal in one hand. If you are
new to meditating, it's better to sit in a comfortable chair then to lie down, so you don't fall
asleep. Close your eyes and observe your slow, even breath. Imagine yourself floating
above the earth effortlessly, like a feather on a gust of wind. As you start to slowly drift towards
the ground, feel the warmth of the sun on your face. Feel yourself moving slowly and softly
downward until you come to rest on the ground. See the glow from the sun touching your face
and feel it as an energy beam funneling down through your head into your body. As this energy
travels down through your shoulders, arms, chest, waist, hips and legs, feel it fill up inside you
and start radiating outward.Imagine an incredible glow from all over your body, and imagine that another, strong
glow is emanating from the crystal you are holding in your hand. Mentally direct the bright shaft
of light from the crystal to whatever you want to work on. If you have a sore throat, for example,
mentally point the crystal so it lights up your throat area. Feel the bright white light penetrating
the skin and enveloping your tissues, bringing healing warmth and love. If you have a job
interview scheduled, picture yourself during the interview and see the beam from the crystal as
'lighting up' your mind so that you respond well to your interviewer's questions.
You can shine the crystal's light on any problem you have, whether physical or not. Some
people find working with crystals enhances their meditations. Why not find out for yourself if
this technique works for you?
FOR ALL THINGS METAPHYSICAL &
We may be a bit away from this lofty goal, but we are on our way. The International
Association of Metaphysicians (IAM) Mall is now on the Internet. Look for our site at:
<http://www.iammall.com> and check it out. We have tried to cover all of the bases and
following pages now on line and ready for your input:
General Membership: We are setting this page up to be available only on a
basis to our members. The intent is not to make it available to everyone wanting a metaphysical
mailing list, but to have it for members wanting to contact each other.
Practitioners Membership: This Registry is so people will be able to find
who are close to their area or available by phone or mail. These members are also on our General
Membership list. This registry is broken down by discipline (i.e., astrology, palmistry, tarot, etc.)
and as we build the list, it will also be searchable by city and/or state.
Presenter's Registry: This page is designed to be a source for people looking for
speakers, workshop facilties, etc. If you are a practitioner who also does seminars and
workshops, you can be listed on this registry as well.
Events: For events that will ultimately be searchable month-by-month as well as
state, and country. Non-profit organizations get to list their events at no charge; for-profit events
are charged a small fee.
Retreat Centers: We hope to be able to have a directory of retreat centers around
country...the world eventually, so that if you want a location to put on an event or just go
someplace to have a personal retreat you will be able to find one that you like.
Premonition Registry: This is for those brave psychics who want to register
premonitions of things to come. It should be fun. Check out which ones are accurate.
Soon to come is a Chat Room so you can go online and chat with other metaphysicians
about areas of common interest and the IAM Forum, a quarterly magazine about metaphysics
In the works: a metaphysical and spiritual bookstore; a metaphysical and spiritual catalog
of products; a sacred tours group. All this for a general membership fee of $15 and a practitioners
membership fee of $35. We will even create a basic home page for you for $200 or allow you to
link your existing home page to the IAM Mall for $15./

BUBBLES FROM THE
BOOK REVIEWS, ETC.
Ephraim - The Location of Lost Israelite Tribes in the West According to the Bible,
and non-Jewish Tradition, and General Fact, by Yair Davidy, Russell-Davis Publishers,
1995, Israel, 285 pp., $25.00.Ephraim reveals new evidence proving that very many peoples of British and
European origin are actually of ancient Hebrew origin. They are usually unaware of this fact and
have lost knowledge of their identity. Ephraim emphasizes Jewish and other sources. It
several important revelations: Ephraim adduces Biblically-based criteria on a
determining which peoples are most probably of Israelite origin and which are not. The criteria
1) A relative lack of anti-Semitism when compared with others. 2) The doing of justice,
implying social empathy. 3) Proven military prowess in the past at least and at present in
potential. 4) A minimal degree of national intellectual wisdom and honesty. 5) Economic and
physical blessings as promised in scripture. 6) Archaeological and related proofs showing paths
of migration. 7) Other Biblical evidence predicting where the Lost Ten Tribes would go, what
type of religion and government they would have, etc.
Despite many exceptions, on the whole peoples of British and Northwest European
descent meet these Scripturally-given standards and they are the only ones who do.
Other subjects covered by Ephraim include the following:
Ancient Arab sources of Jewish inspiration said in effect that the Lost Ten Tribes were in
France and Britain. The Arabs referred to the Lost Northern Israelites as the Sons of Ad who,
they believed, had been blown away to "The Happy Isles of the West" meaning, according to
Classical Literature, to the British Isles. Some of the Arab-related Kedarite sons of Ishmael,
migrated to North America which is therefore called "Kedar" in the Bible and recalled together
with the Lost Ten Tribes in the End Times.
An analysis of the Prophecy of Isaiah (chapter 49) proves that exiled Israel is in the
Western Isles, etc. meaning Britain and America. Based on Isaiah was a Midrash concerning
Three Places of Exile to which the Lost Ten Tribes were to be led: The three places were: The
River Sambation; Daphne of Antiochea; and Beneath the Cloud of Darkness. These terms are
shown to describe actual locations along migratory paths leading to western Europe, Britain, and
even North America.
In Biblical prophecy as demonstrated by The Book Of Obadiah and Talmudic sources,
the descendants of Edom are equated with Germany & Rome. Peoples descended from
were recorded in parts of Europe and converged on the German area. The German-Roman
alliance today seems to have a de-facto plot to destroy Britain, America, and the Jews and this is
documented. The Talmud says that Joseph is the only one capable of completely defeating
Edom! According to Rabbinical Commentators on the Biblical Book of Obadiah, the Lost Ten
Tribes are located in France, Britain, and the north. It has been proven from other sources that
the British, North Americans and people of British descent come from Joseph and these have
shown in the past that they are capable (with the aid of God) of defeating Germany. The Hebrew
Bible says expressly that at some stage Judah (i.e. the present-day Jews) and "Ephraim" will be
reunited and together will transfer the Palestinians by airflight to somewhere in the west.
The Prophets Isaiah and Jeremiah describe the Lost Ten Tribes in the Latter Days as
apparently practicing a form of Christianity: They must, therefore, be sought for amongst those
Christian nations who most fully meet other given signs of identification. This leads directly to
peoples of Northwest European and especially British origin. A special chapter contributed by
Israel Feld (of Susia, Hebron Mountains, Israel) discusses Rabbinical sources that show Judah
and the Lost Ten Tribes to be complementary parts of a whole and to have need of each other and
that the re-unification of Judah with the Lost Ten Tribes is necessary in order to rebuild the Holy
Ephraim proves that the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel are amongst the western
evidence consists of Arab and Jewish traditions, Midrashim, nomenclature, the path of the
dolmens, the meaning of names and Biblical prophecy, history, legends, and even features of
present-day politics. Much of the research is original and some very important and conclusive
proofs are presented for what seems to be the first time ever. Reports state that Ephraim
for easy reading of great interest. Ephraim may well be somewhat controversial but it
nevertheless imparts knowledge of great importance and is well worth acquiring. In some
respects Ephraim is indispensable.
